Bug fix in ImageFlow 1.3

Today we are going to fix a bug I found in updating ImageFlow, going from version 1.2.1 to 1.3. The new version is intended to solve, among other things, the problem that was in Internet Explorer when there was only one image in the gallery. The problem was that nothing was showed if only we had a picture in the gallery in IE. Well, version 1.3 already displays the picture if we only have one, but if that image also has a caption, it turns out that the caption is not shown, nor Internet Explorer or any other browser . Well, here is the solution for those wishing to fix the bug (and are brave enough) and want to get their hands on the code of the library.

ImageFlow in CodeIgniter

This time I will explain how to include JavaScript library called ImageFlow within the CodeIgniter framework and make it runs at the first time, which is not easy! Also, I will explain some small modifications to the code of the library. Then we will see an example of how to include it and finally we will see the PHP module required for proper operation. But first, let’s see what is the library ImageFlow and what it does.

What is ImageFlow and what is it for?

ImageFlow is a JavaScript library that allows us to add a really elegant image gallery in our website in a very simple way, making it look like Flash without the drawbacks that technology can bring. So, in this way we can show our image gallery how we want, since it has a large number of configuration parameters, to give it the appearance and behaviour that we like or need for our site. But that is enough and let’s go to the important, the integration into CodeIgniter.
